The Anne Arundel Conflict Resolution Center
provides mediation, facilitation, and education for the peaceful resolution of conflicts to all who ask. We serve the residents of Anne Arundel County and the men and women incarcerated at the correctional facilities in Jessup, MD.
The Anne Arundel Conflict Resolution Center (AACRC) began in 1993 when a group of local citizens met to discuss violence and create a community-based solution. Today, the AACRC offers mediation, facilitation, and community conferencing services to individuals and groups in conflict. These services are free of charge to the residents of Anne Arundel County. We also offer training and workshops in mediation, anger management, and other conflict resolution processes.
Who We Are
Staff and Board
The AACRC is currently operating with three full-time staff members, two part-time staff members, and one full-time AmeriCorps member. In addition to the staff, the AACRC is supported largely by our Board of Directors, volunteer mediators, and office volunteers. Our Board of Directors is comprised of 12 individuals, making up four committees. The Board is integral to our program and administrative services. The members provide management and financial expertise, as well as help with program development and implementation. In addition to the volunteer assistance from the Board, we benefit from the efforts of committee volunteers, office volunteers, and over 30 trained volunteer mediators.
